After many weeks of test driving cars,
I finally returned to my favorite
Vovlo dealership to test drive a 2004
S60. As a former S40 owner, I was
quite skeptical, since I had some
mechanical issues with the car and the
scheduled maintenance was expensive.
I was trying to decide between the
Volvo S60, the Audi A4, the new Acura
TSX and a 2002 BMW 325i. I had tested
the 2003 S60 and found it to be a
little sluggish, but the 2004 was much
peppier. I also like the small
changes to the interior and, of
course, the free scheduled
maintenance. It's a fun, safe, solid
car. Also, after wrangling with the
dealership, I bought mine for just
Turbo engine, very comfortable seats
and rear headrests that pop down so
you can see at the touch of a button.
The cup holders are oddly placed and
there is not enough storage space for
CDs, my cell phone and other everyday
stuff. The key is bulky, feels a
little wobbly because it retracts and
requires a special key ring.
